Simple Oven-Roasted Brisket -- My First!

Simple Oven-Roasted Brisket -- My First!

I am between summer trips at the moment so my kitchen has seen busier days. Last week I took the boys on our yearly mother-sons adventure (click here for photos and a  recap) and next week we head to the Jersey Shore for our annual week at the beach.

I love summer!

Right now I’m in my clean-out-the-fridge mode trying to use up perishables before we leave. The boys wanted burgers for dinner but I wasn’t in the mood. So I used two aging zucchinis and the ground beef I defrosted for them to whip myself up a fun dinner.

The result was a tasty bowl of awesome. Especially after I topped it with a touch of feta and chives from my herb garden.

This idea could work with any ground meat; I just happened to have the beef on hand.


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 medium zucchini, chopped (totaling about 600g)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
